A bathroom upgrade is one of the best investments, aside from remodelling your kitchen, that you can do for your home. When it comes to remodelling your shower, you might consider it to be too expensive as this a major component of your bathroom. You may feel the need to replace old tile, and toss out your tub. By approaching this project from the right angle, however, you can certainly remodel your old shower while sticking to a budget that doesn’t put you in a place of unwanted debt. Here’s how.
Do the right planning
All great projects start with a good deal of planning. Showers are no different. So, decide how much money you really want to invest in your shower at the outset. By knowing your budget ahead of time, you can point yourself in the direction of materials that suit your economic vision as well as your aesthetic style without unwanted surprises. Decide on your numbers.
Refinish your existing tub
Next, consider keeping the older fixtures and upgrading or fixing them. It may be tempting to want to rip out the old and bring in the new. You could find that by repairing what you already have, however, you can extend the life of your tub and shower area extensively.
If your tub is worn out, you benefit from cleaning it, sanding it, patching it up and applying a bit of paint. By doing this, you can potentially make it look as good as new! You can even change the colour and find towels and a curtain to match.
Repair your shower instead of replacing it
In line with patching up your older tub, if you repair your shower you can also potentially save quite a lot of money down the road. This way, you not only get a new-looking and extremely functional shower in place of your old one, but you help prevent any water damage issues from accumulating in your home over time down the road.
